I thought the purpose of the Google Analytics condition was to only use the tracking code when:
- Tracking code exists
- In production
- Not a logged in admin
However, the condition seems to return true when not in production. Is this the intention, am I missing something? I have double checked the constants are correct and I’m getting analytics events firing in console in my dev version. Here’s a test:
if (GOOGLE_ANALYTICS_ID && (WP_ENV !== 'production' || !current_user_can('manage_options')))
Sub in actual values for logged in admin in development:
if ( 'UA-XXXXX-Y' && ( 'development' !== 'production' || ! true ) )
if ( true && ( true || false ) )
So the condition will return true for those values and load tracking.
Let’s try in production and not admin…
if ( UA-XXXXX-Y && ( 'production' !== 'production' || ! false ) )
if ( true && ( false || true ) )
Yep works fine there, but only because its not an admin.
I feel like I must be missing something because surely someone would have noticed this already? Unless the point is to use a tracking code in roots specifically for development analytics and use a different code with a plugin or something for production analytics?
Otherwise shouldn’t the check be
WP_ENV == 'production', not
!== and check that BOTH the env is production AND the user is not admin:
if (GOOGLE_ANALYTICS_ID && WP_ENV == 'production' && !current_user_can('manage_options') )
Am I crazy?
